Most Overrated Rock Bandscopkiller
The Contenders: Page 4
one of the worst bands ever - how come Queen, Metallica and Led Zeppelin are on the list - best bands of all time - idolangelx13
Are Daughtry even rock? Most of the songs are just Kelly Clarkson-type songs (but sung from a male perspective) but engineered with loud rock guitars (their debut CD sounds too loud! ). What a sham.V 1 Comment
This band is the definition of overrated. Their debut was 4/5 stars at most, and that's the only thing they have worth listening to. It's just the truth. - papervinnie
I don't think Pearl Jam is as good as people think. Their only good album, Ten, had a couple good ones on it. The rest of everything just isn't that good. I think the only one that is maybe a bit underrated is Mike McCready.
First of all, Ten is definitely NOT their only good album. It's their best, but apparently you haven't ventured past the mainstream stuff. Every song on Ten (except for Oceans) are some of the best songs of all time, but I see you're only judging the hits. Listen to more of their music and you'll see how painfully wrong you are. - Songsta41
Should be on number 1 of overrated bands. Can't stand the singers voice - ChatonNoir
Eh not really - christangrant
They're pretty overrated to be honest, I'm trying to like them but... I just can't
They need to be much higher on the list. They're not even rock, they're pop
I only like one song- My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up).
I'm trying to understand their appeal. Still haven't found it. - naFrovivuSV 3 Comments
Man, Rammstein isn't overrated, they are underrated. Why? Reasons :
- German language
-It's industrial metal
-Their guitarists are lazy - Disturbedpotato
Rise against should be no where near this list! They are not even close to being as popular as they should be!
Just because they have a ton of good songs doesn't mean they're overrated!
They aren't even good...
Might not be overrated because many people know they suck
So good... the highlight of the music who shaped me into who I am today.
Rush is not overrated at all. They're an immensely talented, groundbreaking band. Apart from a few misfires they've mostly put out excellent prog-rock, and their most recent album is one of their absolute best, highly admirable effort for a band over 40 years old.
I think that Rush is UNDERRATED, not overrated. They shouldn't be on this list.
Yeah, as musical artists they are underrated, but as a rock band they are totally overrated! - somekindofaguy
Rush is very overrated. U either like them or u hate them and I hate them
Geddy Lee - Unique singer
Alex Lifeson - Great guitarist
Neil Peart - Untouchable drummer
Not underrated, but not overrated either. - naFrovivuS
Disturbed is not overrated. They should be more famous, listen songs like Inside The Fire and Stricken. - Disturbedpotato
Never even heard of them so they can't be overrated.
While their music is good, I do not think they are amazing as everyone says. "Don't Stop Believin'" already sounds like a cliche song already.
Personally, I think they are one of the most overrated out of all the classic rock bands.
REMEMBER, Overrated, Not Worst.
Don't Stop Believing is really overrated. Faithfully and Stone in Love are both excellent, but Don't Stop Believing is so OVERRATED!
'Don't stop believing' is terribly overrated and it's not that good. But it's only one song so...
They are good but way to overrated for one songV 1 Comment
More Pop sellout garbage - christangrant
They've become sellouts. - naFrovivuS
There is one girl in the band, and sadly, you can't tell which one it is.
Note to fans: stop forming your music tastes based on what Hot Topic advertises.
How is this so low on the list?! They're so overrated and the fans are annoying. They compare every single rock band to these... Idiots!
Do they ever actually play anything or do they stand there trying to look badass on the rock movie channel?
there are so many annoying fangirls that are interested in looks and trends but without those bands who influenced them like D'ERLANGER, X-JAPAN, those fangirls should realize that this is not the only good band in japan - ronluna
Dir en grey? I wouldn't call them overrated. Just that some fans are annoying. And interested in their looks? That might have been about 10 years ago when they were VK but now they look like a normal metal band, none of them is especially attractive (not even when they were VK), and I appreciate that even not being attractive, people love them because hell, their music is awesome and shouldn't be based on looks. @ ronluna, I love X Japan and I like a few songs from D'erlanger, but DEG was not inspired by neither band. Kyo was inspired by Buck-Tick, so get your facts straight.
Ugh. If it wasn't for Wonderwall (an already annoying song), this band wouldn't be even included in this list. Why? Because no one would ever care. They're overrated, and yet, so irrelevant.
Boring songs, tried so hard to sound like the Beatles, didn't succeed in that. Yeah really overrated - ChatonNoir
Gotta be the biggest rip off band ever, they claimed to be the modern day Beatles, but really were a third rate Slade. Along with those other two bob British northen bands 'the stone roses' and primal scream. When the British music press starts to get a 'scene going' they champion any third rate chancer"s that starts acting up and drops there trousers for the camera. See Blur, manic street cleaners, pulp, the clash. The list is endless. Someone had to say it.
The who is probably one of the most underrated rock bands far from overrated have any of you who voted even listened to a who song? good lyrics great drums great bass great guitar good voice All of the members were put on the greatest bassists, drummers, guitarists, and singers list of all time by rolling stones that must mean something
The who were totally unique and so exciting as a band. I think for creativeness they actually beat both the stones and the Beatles. They had a sick sense of humour, did powerful rock songs with great guitar riffs, they made bluesy stuff, epthey were inspired by Motown soul, they tried rock opera stuff... Very versatile and cool members and the worlds coolest drummer ever - ChatonNoir
The who is not overrated. Even if they are, they deserve all the credit they deserve and miles more. They practically invented the hard rock genre and were the biggest inspiration to classic rock today other than the Beatles.
Of all the classic rock bands their the least overrated.
techinical skill? check
great songwriting? check
no plagerism? check
rocking? double check - RecklessGreed
those fangirls like to see a band with good looking members without the music. their music is good but they forgot other bands which introduced visual kei - ronluna
Not every The gazettE fan is like this. @ronluna, stop judging bands based on their fanbase. You're just like the X fans I hate: Put down other bands so their favorite band looks good. I love X Japan but they're not my favorite. There are tons of bands that aren't X Japan.
Also, there are other bands that founded VK, not just X Japan and D'erlanger. What about BUCK-TICK? What about Luna Sea?!
